After grossing audiences out with body horror flicks such as Bite and The Heretics, director Chad Archibald and the Black Fawn Films crew seem to be heading in a new direction with their latest. I’ll Take Your Dead is described as a slow burn drama wrapped in a horror film, and while that may be slightly disappointing to longtime fans and supporters, I can assure you that the team went all in on this one. Archibald says of the film:
We’ll have a lot more to share in the near future, but until then, check out the official plot synopsis and debut image gallery below. This is a pretty one.
William has a simple job: he makes dead bodies disappear. Through circumstances out of his control, his little farm house in the country has become a dumping ground for the casualties of the gang related murders in the nearby city. His daughter Gloria has become used to the rough looking men dropping off corpses and is even convinced that some of them haunt their house. After a woman’s body is dumped at the house, William begins his meticulous process when he realizes that she’s not actually dead. As the gang activity increases, William patches up the woman and holds her against her will until he can figure out what to do with her. As they begin to develop an unusual respect for each other, the woman’s murderers get word that she’s still alive and make a plan to finish what they started.
